    Figured. Just found a bunch of documents for the Icon. It even included a comparison chart between the 928, 1020, and the Icon. I'm not sure why the 1020 was there since the 1520 should be what it "competes" against.

    Wishful thinking would be a VZW version of the 1020...
    I'd imagine it's more likely there for you to use to keep customers away from AT&T.

    1520 is much larger, so I wouldn't call it a competitor

    Any price information, Bertong? Also, do you know if both Black and White will be released as the same time? I'd like to play with both before I decide which one I'm going with.
    Thanks for your help!

    Which would be exactly 3 months after the 1520 was released. Is this really a coincidence, people???

    guess not, you win.

    I'm still going to wait for the in-depth reviews before springing for it, though. hard to imagine the battery life will be that great - my 928 is lousy.

    Honestly, unless you get a phone like the droid maxx your probably gonna have to charge it every night. I use my 928 a good amount and don't have much trouble getting through the day

    My 928 gives me roughly 7 hours and if im listening to music on the phone or streaming music I only get 3-4 hours tops. I'll get the 929 in hopes of better battery life. Hoping for $500 full retail.

    Verizon also has a promo going on till the end of march, trade in a phone and they'll give u up to $300 if its worth it. Wonder how much Verizon would offer for the 928 vs how much the Microsoft store would offer for a trade in.

    Black and white looks like it will be released at the same time. However, it looks like retail stores will have black only available for sale (similar to the tablet - red is online only, and the recent 928 shipments - stores have black only).

    Can't confirm the statement above with phone in your hands by the 23rd, but its definitely coming. I personally can't wait to get it.

    $100 for the 928 if you activate a new phone. Need to double check though. Haven't had customers trade in a Lumia 928 yet.

    Only $100 for the only high end WP on vzw at the moment that's ridiculous thanks for the info I may check the Microsoft store first then. Otherwise sell it online myself

    I hope that they at least have both available as display models in the stores? Either Microsoft or Verizon stores better have them out - I need to see what I'm buying before I buy it.

    I do think that the mistaken Fry's display from a week or two ago had a white one on display.

    I don't want to win! I want any and all traces of these exclusivity agreements with AT&T to cease and desist. I hope the buyout does it but we have no clear evidence of that being the case.

    I think it's marketing speak again. I went to the web site and the Trophy (and my old Touch Pro 2) is worth $5. LOL Now, I'd love to hear that I'm wrong, but that is what I got from the VZW site.

    I just traded in 5 old phones.

    EVO 4G - $5
    Samsung Intensity - $7
    Samsung Galaxy SII - $35
    Samsung Instinct - $5
    iPhone 5 (16gb) - $300

    Although I sent them all in at the same time ,I haven't received the credit for the iPhone just yet so we'll see what they try to pull. All of the others are now an electronic gift certificate that I can use on Verizon. I'll probably use the credits to pay my bill and get the Icon from Microsoft.

    Can't wait to see what the off contract price will be. Unless it's some ridiculous price I'll be pre-ordering.
